KISS have been named one of the newest inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This year's ceremony takes place on April 10 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center with the band joining a host of other legends being inducted, including Linda Ronstadt and Nirvana.
"We know that engaging the fans is a huge opportunity," says Joel Peresman, president/CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation.
"It gives them a chance to be a part of the ceremony, but it also adds a palpable energy to the event. Once we decided to open the ceremony to the public in New York, that had a huge impact on the decision to have it at Barclays Center."
The inductees are voted in by a 700 person panel of members throughout the music industry. Footage of the HOF ceremony airs on HBO in May.
